Life Beyond Circumstances


This world is circling around itself

Self of man is captured within

God's wisdom has been put on the shelf

That gathers dust to cover sin


Circumstances decide decisions

Disaster seems to have gained control

No knowledge of God, no real visions

No real summer before the fall

Like Little Children…

A child, so humble and so bold
To rise against unrighteous cold
Unkind and loveless heresy,
Is hard to find apparently

Instead you see them quarrelling
About what’s right or wrong, they cling
To doctrine, dogma ill-conceived
And leave their audience deeply grieved

What remains at the end of the day?

Looking for new sense of life
We see humans torn in strife
Trying to squeeze out what’s new
Hoping that they’ll score a coup

Be it fame or riches now
Climbing up the ladder – wow
From above the world looks good
Jealous is the neighborhood

Entering His Rest…

As long as there are dreams and wishes
Unfulfilled
And burning pain that cuts all through to
Get us killed
We have not yet arrived where
Freedom reigns
And only peace of mind with
Joy remains

Behold, the new has come…

Like a blank sheet of paper
Perfected by His scraper
The new man knows not who he was
Before he has been freed for cause

It seems there never was a man
Who thought of sin and how he can
Escape from this life’s evil fates
And find on earth safe haven’s gates

That open up and help him run
From wickedness and all that’s done
By man who knows not what will be
As soon as God has set him free

Behold, His Kingdom’s Promised Land
Is reached by those who understand
That it has always been that close
As their own breath is to their nose

 Jesus answered them,

“Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who practices sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” (Jn 8:34-36 ESV)

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. (2 Cor 5:17 ESV)
